Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said in a recent interview that the filibuster rule change made in the Senate on Thursday will hurt the chamber's ability to pass legislation.

"It will poison the atmosphere of the Senate," Cruz said in an interview with Bloomberg Television's "Political Capital with Al Hunt," a transcript of which was posted online Friday afternoon.


First of all, considering how violent the typical Teahadist receptacle claims to be, and sometimes are when they one of their leaders puts out a violent keyword, Ted Cruz's choice of words deserves note. "Poison." And the irony is amazing as well, considering he is living embodiment of political poison, not to mention first rate whore of the plutocrats.

Secondly, it looks like this discredited Teahadist loser isn't planning to shut the fuck up anytime soon. As much as that is good for Democrats' prospects, just look at Teahadist's recent electoral failures for evidence of that, this guy's existence in politics delays Americans reconciliation and coming together to stop the plutocratic divide and conquer campaign and its subsequent environmental and economic catastrophes.

Finally, my inspiration for my little rant here: I am just incredulous that this pawn of the plutocrats has the gall to claim that filibuster reform, which happens to coincide with DEMOCRACY, could poison the Senate any more than their abuse of the filibuster had already poisoned the political atmosphere?! And how much Mr Cruz has poisoned politics in general.

I can't wait for the day that I no longer need to look at his smug face any more. Someone please defeat this loser in his next election and send him back to Canada. Please?
